Service was great. The food was fantastic. Had the redfish and seafood dish. Old fashioned with rye whiskey was made to perfection. Nice bar and ambiance. This was our 4th time there. We're definitely returning soon..

Service here was OUTSTANDING. Ambiance is comfy yet modern. Food was good tasting but not WOW. A few little tweaks here and there with their recipes, and I could see us becoming regulars!

We are frequent diners at this restaurant. We had an open table certificate for $50 that I had attached to this reservation as per open table procedure. The server was not familiar with open table and went to get her manager. He/she would not give us the courtesy of coming out to assist with the certificate. Very disappointed at the manager and his lack of customer service. The server herself was great but makes us really not want to go back.

Update from Open Table: the certificate was being entered incorrectly and not as per directions on the certificate. Love the food but their lack of focus on customer service is definitely a reason to avoid this restaurant when there are plenty of others in Houston that are really great at customer service.

It was our first time, and we loved it! We did not know what to expect because it was recommended for us to try, but it was a delightful surprise. We all enjoyed our food. We will tell everyone about it.

Love the ambience. Great food and service. Pretty well stocked bar with a moderate selection of high quality Bourbon and Scotch. Our waiter Joel was the best. Definitely going back.

Food was ok - we’ve been before and the menu options and food were better. This time the menu was fairly limited, likely due to COVID. Service was good and the restaurant is very nicely decorated and good ambiance.

Celebrating my daughter’s graduation! Was a lovely evening-great food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. So glad to have a place like this near us. Miss some of the non-italian entrees, but the food is excellent! Buffalo cauliflower is the bomb!Thank you for a lovely night!

This has become our favorite new spot. The owner has made an early stage investment in the area and we are glad he has. The food is very good. The bar staff are excellent, great cocktails and the vibe in the restaurant is like nothing else in the area. Other local restaurateurs should visit and take from the formula.
Every meal has been delicious. Going with friends we had a blast as the staff cater to you. I hope the early stage investment pays off....this was a much needed injection of culture in an otherwise very drab restaurant scene.

I think we had an off day. First off our order of the mimosas in the carafe was at the bar for 20 to 25 min until my wife asked our waitress if that was ours. Then our appetizers of the buffalo cauliflower had blue cheese which we didn't want. Our food was served at room temp which it may had been sitting waiting to be brought to us. Last my wife told waitress get food was cold I guess the kitchen reheated with strawberries still on plate, which by the way was lobster and waffle. Like I said must have been an off day.

Griffin was an excellent server, was very attentive and personable. Everything we ate was fantastic. The only thing (most likely out of Wholesome Kitchen’s control) was that the ambiance lighting was disturbed by the street lights coming on outside of our window, changing the lighting level in that side of the restaurant. It’s not the biggest deal in the world but it did cause a noticeable interruption and made it feel a little less romantic than we would have liked.

Overall very happy and will be coming back not just for dinner but to try the brunch as well. Exceptional food from start to finish!

Only thing keeping the overall review from five stars was the inability to make zucchini chips and the fact that raw oysters were unavailable. Not many chances for us as parents of young children to go out. Needless to say we were disappointed when both of those items weren’t available.

This is my third time visiting and each time I would have given top marks. The service is great, even with the fresh/new servers, becuase the overall tone of this place is 'Do right by the customer.' The food has been incredible, the bar list is great, and the bread - wowwww. For an area of Northeast Texas that has been ignored by decent restaurants, this is one satisfied resident who will return often to share my appreciation for their investment.

We indulged in amazing food and left so very satisfied and not energy-zapped. The food certainly tastes indulgent yet healthy. So happy to have this restaurant, especially since we live in a While Foods desert! Wonderful ambiance, energizing and elegant, fun and indulgent—without leaving stuffed and tired. Can’t wait to come back and eat through the menu!!

Bartender was excellent. Has the potential to be a great dining experience but staff lacks basic skills needed to be excellent. Some food items had no seasoning. Ambiance was really nice. They weren't busy at all.

Wonderful venue for the community. Finally we get a higher end restaurant with atmosphere and a night out opportunity change from fast food and chain restaurants in the area. Service could have been faster but a new restaurant has to find its optimum routine with staffing. Would like server to identify bread option. It was wonderful and we did not know it existed unless we had asked if bread is served. It was my second time there and I will return and recommend it to others. Support this restaurant everyone so we can keep it. Wait staff courteous and professional! Thank you!
